Over the last year or so Phillip Schofield has lost so much weight and now he has opened up about the diet on Alan Carr Chatty Man.
As you may know Phillip has been doing the 5:2 diet but now he has admitted that his diet has caused him suffer hallucinations.
Talking to Alan Carr he said:
“I saw a picture and thought, ‘You look a bit porky'”
“I wanted to be 11st. It took nine or ten months and now I am”
Now Phill only eats 500 calories a day and fasts for two but this sort of diet doesn’t come without it’s consequences.
“My stomach is now so small I have hardly any appetite and can’t keep weight on,”
“People say, ‘Are you alright, are you alright?'”
“I have had hallucinations.”
Since being on the diet Phill has lost a whopping two stone and looks great for it.
Good for him.
ITV’s This Morning is no stranger to having people who claim they have meet aliens on their show but today it was no different story.
A British woman called Samantha McDonald appeared on the show and admitted that she was repeatedly adducted by aliens and they even abused her and she has photo proof that was shown on the morning show.
Talking to show hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby Samantha admitted alongside alien agony aunt Joanne Summerscales:
‘I’ve asked them what they want with me and they have said they had come to take me and my family. What they were after was my energy and soul essence.
‘I don’t know why they keep coming back to me. I think it is to do with my energies as I’m into healing and meditation.’
When she was asked where is she taken when she’s adducted her she said:
‘You don’t always remember the abductions because you have memory swipes. You just feel like you have been somewhere but you don’t actually remember it.’
Phillip then asked if she’s sure it’s not all a dream McDonald admitted:
No definitely not. I’ve woken up with marks all over my body and been possessed – sometimes to the point of mind control – where thoughts come into your head that are not your own. I can’t explain it any other way.’
The best thing about this interview today was Phill and Holly’s faces when Samantha was telling them all about her adduction.
